hello, yes i've already done, that was the first thing i did!
but when i put numlock on, there the arrow keys on 8 2 4 and 6.
i've nothing to do with it.
what i want is the navigation keys for nvda.
most laptops or some laptops are made while you press the fn key you
can use the letter keys on the right hand to navigate with nvda.
but not with my dell laptop.
i'm wondering if there is a little tool that when i press the fn key
i can use the letters on the right hand.
if so, i'm realy glad with it!
what they toled about the arrow keys will not work to navigate for
nvda, with or without the fn key pressed.

you tried using the numpad with NVDA input help switched
on? It would be interesting to know what keystrokes it is
aren't screen review commands. Those are commands to
move and read information on a screen such as in a word
processing program where a cursor is present. Such
commands are Windows commands and will work regardless
of screen-reader being used and regardless of keyboard
layout. If a sighted person uses such commands with no
screen-reader being used, the sighted person will move
the cursor in the same ways, right and left arrow, by
character, control right and left arrow, by word., etc.

Re: [nvda] what can i do please help
If you are using NVDA with the laptop layout on a Dell
computer, you can navigate the screen with the arrow keys.
I have never used the FN key with letters to do this. In
fact, an NVDA modifier is not necessary.
Left or Right Arrows read the screen letter by letter.
Add Control to the left and right arrow keys and read the
screen word by word.
Up or Down arrows read the screen line by line.
FN + Left Arrow is Home.
FN + Right Arrow is End.
FN + Up Arrow is Page Up.
FN + Down Arrow is Page Down.
Add Control to the Home or End commands above to move to
the top or the bottom of the screen.
And finally, add Shift to the above commands to select
I've used these commands on Asus, Toshiba, Dell, and
Each of these computers differ on how to make the Function
Keys work without using the FN key. Look on line or read
your manual to learn how to do it.
Hope this helps.

i've done already, but the problem is that i can not
navigate around the screen like i do with the numberic key
block on my computer.
all the other things are possible i know there are some
laptops where you can press the fn key while typing the
letters jkl uio and 789 to manipulate the screen.
but it's a pitty, not here unfortunately!
cheers paul otter
